Have Reptile Questions? Ask a Reptile Vet for Answers ASAP
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in reptiles and Reptile Rescue.
Can you tell me about the set up?
UVB light, linear tube or compact coil, strength, brand?
Temps in Basking area, warm side and cool side?
Have you had a fecal done?
Passing stool? Is it normal or runny?
Does she eat at all?
State to locate a Herp Vet?
Is she housed in with the other Dragon?
What type of substrate are you using?
Is she housed alone or with another Dragon?
What substrate is she on now?
I am so sorry. From what you described it sounds like she had a serious Parasite load. To determine that you would need to have a Necropsy done (animal autopsy). You may want to do it and have them check and see if the Dragon had Adenovirus. It is deadly to dragons and very contagious. One of the symptoms is slow or lack of growth. It can attack young Dragons that do not have a strong immune system. This is some information on Adenovirus: http://www.anapsid.org/adenoviruses2.html Since this article was published, they do have a test called a PCR that can test live Dragons for this problem via a stool test that is sent off to a University that does the testing.
I am so sorry for the loss.
